June 29, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – The Supreme Court sometimes sets precedent by its rulings; sometimes it affects policy by what it doesn't do. The same day that justices issued the Whole Woman's Health ruling, they let stand a lower court ruling forcing Washington pharmacists to dispense abortion-inducing drugs.
Justices on Monday declined to hear an appeal in the case of Stormans v. Wiesman by a 5-3 vote. The voting mirrored the Whole Woman's Health decision perfectly, with Justice Samuel Alito writing the dissent joined by Justice Clarence Thomas and Chief Justice John Roberts.
The Stormans family, who are devout Christians, had declined to fill orders for such drugs in their pharmacy, Ralph's Thriftway.
